    Assign the enumerable es6 Symbol properties from one or more objects to the first object passed on the arguments. Can be used as a supplement to other extend, assign or merge methods as a polyfill for the Symbols part of the es6 Object.assign method.

    Please consider following this project's author, Jon Schlinkert, and consider starring the project to show your ❤️ and support.


    Install with npm:

    $ npm install --save assign-symbols


    A symbol is a unique and immutable data type and may be used as an identifier for object properties. The symbol object is an implicit object wrapper for the symbol primitive data type. - Mozilla Developer docs for Symbol


    const assignSymbols = require('assign-symbols');
    let target = {};
    // add a symbol to object "one"
    let one = {};
    let symbolOne = Symbol('aaa');
    one[symbolOne] = 'bbb';
    // add a symbol to object "two"
    let two = {};
    let symbolTwo = Symbol('ccc');
    two[symbolTwo] = 'ddd';
    // assign symbols from objects "one" and "two" to object "target"
    assignSymbols(target, one, two);
    console.log(target[symbolOne]); //=> 'bbb'
    console.log(target[symbolTwo]); //=> 'ddd'
